Katie grew up in rural Iowa and started drawing at the age of two. Falling asleep with a crayon in her hand was a common occurrence. Katie graduated from Bethel University (St. Paul, MN) with a BA in Studio Art. She enjoys people, traveling, reading, drawing, dancing, painting, acting, photography, kids and almost anything else that has to do with using her imagination. Her illustrations aim to capture the emotions and personalities of each character using her artsy yet sophisticated style.
